Diane Abbott is a dick

Anti white Labour MP Diane Abbott was in the news this week because of her inability to count, not knowing her own party politics and being an absolute waste of skin.

In an interview Abbott gave with LBC she claimed that 10,000 new police officers would be recruited if Labour wins the forthcoming General Election and when pushed for a price said it would be £80m.

Eighty million pounds divided by 10,000 is 8,000.  

When she was asked if the new police officers would be paid £8,000 a year this is her response:

DA: No, we're talking about a process over 4 years

NF: I don't understand, what is he or she getting?  80 million divided by 10,000 equals 8,000.  What are these police officers being paid?

DA: We will be paying them the average

NF: Has this been thought through?

DA: Of course it's been thought through

NF: Where are the figures?

DA: The figures are that the additional costs in year one when we anticipate recruiting 250,000 policemen will be £64.3 million

NF: 250,000 policemen?

DA: And women

NF: So you're getting more than 10,000?  You're recruiting 250,000?

DA: No, we are recruiting 2,000 and perhaps 250

NF: So where did the 250,000 come from?

DA: I think you said that, not me

Unbelievable!  I've watched and listened to several interviews with Diane Abbott over the last few days and she's floundered her way through every single one, constanly repeating the same words and phrases. In particular, "Specifically allocated" and "Reversing Capital Gains Tax".

When pushed for further details about where Labour will get the money from she insists that reversing CGT will pay for it, although she can provide no figures.  In another interview with the BBC she sat there, having absolutely no idea what was going on.  She's the political equivalent of that fake sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela's memorial.

If anyone was thinking voting Labour, surely you've got to be toying with yourself?  I know I am.  Do I want a change?  Probably yes.

Do I want this woman anywhere near the Government?

Do I fuck.

Remember that time she was on that gameshow?

More election stuff

So the manifesto's aren't out yet, so we can't make an informed decision about who to vote for although Labour's draft manifesto was leaked earlier.

In it, it states that they will renationalise the rail network, freeze fares, add free wi-fi and end driver only trains.

It also states that Royal Mail will be renationalised and create at least one publicly owned energy company.

Now, all this sounds absolutely great, but I have to ask, just WHERE does the money come from to pay for it all?

By simply repeating that reversing the CGT over and over again doesn't bring in more money.  Each time the line is said it doesn't double the amount.

Do I think the rail could be renationalised? Not at all, it's too far gone.  I've wrote before about how I think utilities (and I believe rail to be included in this) SHOULD be owned and run by the State, but it would cost an astronomical amount of money to put right.

I hate the "free wi-fi" on trains line, if you're voting for a party based off the fact you'll get free wi-fi on a train  you need to give your head a wobble and grow up.

From what I can see in the manifesto summary, it's all idealist stuff, and if I was gullible I'd take it all in, but I'm not.  It cannot all be delivered, there is just nor the time or money available to do it.

Again, it says Zero Hour Contracts will be banned, I applaud that - I've written about it before too, I despise the very notion of it.  But you get rid of those and you instantly have a spike in unemployment.  Sure, it might even out over time, but it's a huge risk.

Labour are simply promising too much to be credible.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not siding with the Tories here, as I said in my last update, I'm looking from all sides.  I don't particularly like Theresa May and most of her cronies, but if I'm going to vote for her to do one then the opposition needs to be able to deliver and not have people like Diane Abbott around.  Fuck, I'd rather have Kim Jong-Un in Government over her.

Meanwhile, the usual Facebook crowd have been doing their little images:

Clearly put together by someone who wants the Tories out, the Labour side details manifesto points where the Tory side shows what will absolutely definitely happen, as if they are part of the Tory manifesto.

But hang on, that can't be right can it?  Because only the nasty Tories tell lies and promote propaganda don't they?  Jeez.

And you wonder why people are fed up of politics when this kind of shit is wheeled out.  It doesn't provide a fair balance.

What I also find confusing is that if everybody wants the Tories out like they say they do, why were the recent local elections a landslide for the Tories?


And finally...

Over in Facebook Fuckwitt Corner we see a list of A list of people who drink too much.

We'll be back over the weekend with more stuff that I don't have time to write right now! :)

Bye for now peeps!
